Kratos Defense and Security Solutions Inc. recently announced a new contract and passed a milestone on a second project.
The company’s RT Logic subsidiary is among 14 companies that will split work for the U.S. Air Force’s TETRAS program. The initials stand for Test and Evaluation Technologies for Ranges, Armaments and Spectrum.
The amount of work to be divided among the 14 companies could total up to $998 million. It is not clear how much of the work will flow to RT Logic.
The Air Force Test Center at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida awarded the contract.
Kratos (Nasdaq: KTOS) also recently announced it completed phase 1 of the Enterprise Ground Services (aka EGS) study for the Air Force, and is moving on to phase 2.
According to a statement from Kratos, The EGS study contract demonstrates a path forward to transition the Command and Control System-Consolidated (aka CCS-C), the military satellite communications satellite command and control system, into the EGS.
“One of the biggest drivers behind the development of EGS is an increasingly ominous space threat environment and the speed with which those threats occur,” said John Monahan, senior vice president of Kratos Satellite Communications Products and Federal Solutions, in a prepared statement. “With the success of our recent phase 1 prototype demo, the government has authorized us to begin working on phase 2.”
